Bucky (Silas): “he’s got the biggest heart you’ll ever see in any creature on this Earth.”

In October 2011, my fiancée Michelle and I visited PetCo at Union Square to look for a second cat—we’d adopted Boomer, our first, in April—and knew we wanted someone special. Boomer was a handful, with more than enough energy and mischievousness for one household, and he’d also lived his life without another cat. We’d strolled through PetCo before and never quite seen the “Right” Cat at KittyKind, but October 7 2011 was destined to be a special day—it was the day we met Bucky (then known as Silas)!
At first we didn’t notice Bucky, as he was very shy and in one of the top cages. We looked at a few other cats but once I locked eyes with Bucky, I couldn’t look away—there was a lot of sadness in his eyes, but also a lot of warmth. He clearly just wanted a home where he could not only be loved but also give love to a family. We later learned that this four year old boy was abandoned shortly after his birth at the steps of PetCo. Waiting in line while other folks met their prospective new cats was nerve-wracking, as we’d decided if we couldn’t get Bucky we wouldn’t take anyone that day. We knew that our home needed to be his forever home. When he was taken out of the cage, I leaned over to say hi and he rubbed his face against mine, which only confirmed what we knew—he was our boy in every way that mattered.
We’ve now had him over a year and couldn’t be happier. Though he’s still a bit shy and frightened, he’s got the biggest heart you’ll ever see in any creature on this Earth. He loves to rub his head against us, plop on our laps and wins over every person who meets him. All he wants is to love us and all we want is to love him—he’s the perfect son.
Thank you KittyKind for keeping our boy safe till we found him and making this all possible.
